if i wanted to watch hours of racism and misogyny i would just go outside
Clara sacrificed herself and DIED a gazillion times to save his every single incarnation, and now the Doctor treats her like shit. He mocks her, he puts her in danger, he calls her an egomaniac (wtf?) he says to her face how much he misses Amy. And yet he’s sort of outraged she struggles to accept him. I’m appalled she’s still travelling with him.
oh but people are going to defend him by saying
"He diD tHAt tO MARtha tHo!"
NO. He still respected her, he never called her names, or invented irrational personalities for her and would do whatever in his power to remove her from current danger, even offering himself instead.
RTD even mentioned that when Ten lies to Martha about the Time Lords it’s a big thing for him. That’s why he comes clean to her in basically the next episode.
Also, he respects Martha as a person and individual, he was drawn to her because she was calm and logical when everyone else was freaking out. He wasn’t interested in her because she was some magical paradox, he was just interested in her as a person.
How to do a plot twist:
- Take the plot in a different direction. Make something happen that nobody was expecting.
How not to make a plot twist:
- Take something that already happened and had lots of plot and character development built on on it and say “Fooled you! That didn’t really happen!”

Pro-Moffat arguments/statements I dislike:
- "It’s DOCTOR Who, not COMPANION Who." Don’t. Just don’t.
- "He created Jack Harkness." There’s an argument to be made that he played a not insignificant part in shaping the character, but between Canton, Vastra and Jenny, is it really necessary?
"90% of the Doctor Who fandom doesn’t know what asexuality is, please shut up"
Poor 11th doctor
That’s because Eleven had a companion who was costumed for the male gaze, not for functionality. Poor Amy Pond.
See this post.
I am still upset that an actor as awesome as peter capaldi is the doctor at a time where I have less than 0 faith in the writing/production of the show.
this perfectly summarizes my feelings
"You’re willing to accept that there are aliens and time travel in Doctor Who, but you won’t accept plot holes?"
yES BECAUSE ALIENS AND TIME TRAVEL ARE PART OF THE SHOWS ESTABLISHED CANON WHILE PLOT HOLES ARE A RESULT OF LAZY WRITING
